The Boston Bruins have been hit hard by injuries, but they got some encouraging news yesterday.
“It was all right; it didn’t feel awesome,” Boychuk told the Boston Herald. “I haven’t skated in five days or so. But at least I got back on the ice and moved around a little. It’s still pretty stiff. It’s been loosening up every day. We’ll see how it feels (Tuesday).”
The Bruins are currently without defensemen Adam McQuaid and Dougie Hamilton, which means that if Boychuk isn’t available, then Boston will have to call someone up before tonight’s match against the Calgary Flames.
Bruins coach Claude Julien suggested that they haven’t done that yet because they’re still hoping it won’t be necessary.
